Noise Permits

Noise
If you intend to have music at your party, don't forget that Texas law considers loud noise as a criminal misdemeanor.  If people can hear it beyond the limits of your property, chances are that it's too loud.  If you are going to have a band, outdoor music or other loud entertainment, advise your neighbors of when it will end, and keep your promise.  You must also apply for a
 
Noise Permit with the police department.  Reasonable limits on the volume and duration of the noise will minimize the likelihood of a complaint.  Remember that one person's music is another's noise

Most noise complaints will result in a warning by police for the first violation.  If officers must respond to another complaint at the same party citations or arrests could result.  Your best bet is immediate and continued compliance when a noise complaint comes your way.
